I believe that climate science is still in its infancy and to unreliable to be accurate. In the Swartz article Foote filled a mason jar with CO2, I believe the concentration is too high to be applicable to an earth model. The reidy article didn’t talk about climate change for me to make a decision, the makeup of the air may affect the temperature. The effect is visible radiation vs infrared radiation.
Scientists may have known about climate change, but there is more money to be made for some people by uses fossil fuels still. They help feed our economy and that’s why politicians haven’t made very much legislation to curb emissions.
